DACULA — Members of Hebron Baptist Church voted overwhelmingly yesterday, Nov. 4, to bring Landon Dowden as lead pastor.
“We’re thankful for your confidence,” Dowden told the crowd moments after the vote was announced. “… We’ll need your encouragement [and] support.”
Dowden graduated from Louisiana State University in 1999 before going on to receive Master of Divinity, Master of Theology, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. A lead pastor for more than 13 years, he brings 21 years of experience leading student camps for various national organizations. Currently, he serves as an adjunct professor for Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in the Doctor of Ministry program.
Hebron’s lead pastor has also contributed two commentaries for the Christ-Centered Commentary Exposition Series, Exalting Jesus in Ezekiel and Exalting Jesus in Esther. Joining Dowden are his wife of 15 years, Tara, and their children Arabella, 14, Adelaide, 10, Adoniram, 9, and Alastair, 6.
